Tripura,26th april :Under fire for disrupting wedding
The DM had faced a barrage of criticism for being ‘too strict’ while stopping a wedding ceremony that had purportedly run past curfew hours in Agartala.
He was seen shoving the groom by the neck, arresting everyone present, including the bride and the groom’s family, slapping a priest and tearing up a written permission for the wedding he himself had signed. Over 30 people were arrested and released later.
the Vedic Brahman Samaj Friday held a meeting in Agartala and demanded that the DM seek apology from the priest he slapped while stopping the wedding ceremony.
Soon after the incident, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb had summoned a report from Chief Secretary Manoj Kumar, who set up an inquiry committee comprising two senior IAS officers – Kiran Dinkarrao Gitte and Tanusree Debbarma.
